The later hellebores are now blooming. Red Lady is blooming for the first time. I think she is going to be great in a few years when she fills out more.
The freckled helleores are one of my favorites though.
Another favorite of spring is the wild flower Spring Beauty. Of course it lives up to its name especially when they are well established in a lawn or flower bed and they look like a pink carpet. Gail wrote a beautiful post about these Spring Beauties as her Wildflower Wednesday post. I think you would enjoy reading it if you pop over here.
It is just marvelous to have so many colors in the garden now.
The daffodils cover most hues of yellow.
Then of course the crocus want to get into the act.
And what would spring be without a few tulips. We are talking few here too. I must put them on my list for next fall. These little beauties used to be about a foot tall. Now they barely peek over the grass.
I hope you all have been able to be out in the garden some this spring. I can say it is a delightful antedote to a long hard winter. I hope there are lots of promise in your garden now that spring has arrived.
What is showing promise in your garden now?
